No Thumbnails For Pictures (JPG / BMP Or PNG)

Jul 19, 2014

I'm not getting any thumbnails showing for any of my pictures, .jpg, .bmp, .png, etc. I tried deleting C:UsersxxxxxxxxAppDataLocalIconCache.db then rebooting, no change.

I suspect I turned something off to see how but forgot to turn it back on. How do I get thumbnails to show for my pictures again.

I looked through gpedit but did not notice anything. This is what I'm seeing. I can change the icon that shows by changing the default program.

How To Disable The Thumbnails

View Thumbnails In Explorer?

Nov 7, 2012

I recently upgraded to Windows 8 on my Boot Camp partition (i'm aware that Apple hasn't officially released drivers for 8 yet, i'm still running the Windows 7 Boot Camp drivers and so far it seems stable).

I've ran into a little problem in the Explorer. As i'm using an SSD, i have my Windows partition fairly small (~50GB) so i keep all of my photos on my Mac partition and don't duplicate them over.

When trying to browse through these photos on the Windows side, i can see the file name and the icon, and they open perfectly in Windows Picture Viewer, but within Explorer they all show the same default Windows "Mountain by the lake" icon.

I've been into Folder Preferences and told it only to display thumbnails and not the icon but still no luck...

Show All Thumbnails - Not Icons?

Apr 30, 2013

I need to see my thumbnails. 99% of my files are Photoshops and I need to see them, not the PS icon. I can only find "Show Icons Oly - Not Thumbnails" in my advanced folder settings. How do I do the opposite. Show all thumbnails - not icons?

Taskbar Thumbnails Disappeared

Nov 6, 2013

Just noticed today that on hovering in the taskbar, thumbnail previews don't show but just a line of text. This has started from a couple of days. In between, randomly, the preview will show up. But mostly it is not over the past couple of days.

Getting No Image Thumbnails In Explorer?

Feb 19, 2013

windows re-doing thumbnails, not when they are gone altogether!

As far as I can remember this happened totally randomly!

UPDATE: I've just realised that this is ALL files, not just images and it doesnt matter if they are on the desktop / pendrive / google drive etc..

Explorer Showing Icons Instead Of Thumbnails?

Dec 7, 2012

I have checked in the only two places I was aware of that would cause this:

Folder Options - View ....however, there is no option there to check show Thumbnails. I believe this option should be there at the top, but it isnt.

I also went to Properties of My Computer, Advanced, Performance. It is checked there to show Thumbnails.

But for whatever reason, I only see icons when I should see thumbnails. And yes, I have changed the view to Medium, large, extra large.

Why windows can't remember my view settings, sort by settings and thumnails ?

I have different types of view settings for different folders but everytime I restart my computer they change. Same thing with thumbnails expect they seem to last a couple days before disappearing, sometimes a thumbnail will appear on a different folder then it was set to.

Video Thumbnails Are Gone And Replaced By Icon

Nov 14, 2012

My Video Thumbnails in Windows (File) Explorer have gone and been replaced by the generic Icon for the program I select to play the video files (VLC, GOM etc). It's happened to my AVI and MPG files on ALL my Windows 8 PC's.

The Folder Options are set to "Display file icon on thumbnails" and the Performance Options/Visual Effects are set to "Show thumbnails instead of icons".

I tried using the "Media Preview" program but it only works on about one in a hundred icons.

If it's happening on all my PC's it must be happening to others, how to fix this?

Windows Explorer Thumbnails Not Getting Saved

Aug 29, 2012

Not matter how many times I let Explorer build the thumbnails, after any reboot or shutdown/power-on the thumbnails get erased and I have to rebuild them again. It happens with all images and videos the same.

IMO, Windows 8 is definitely cool, but it has some rough edges that should've been ironed out before prime time.

Video Icons Don't Show Up Until Thumbnails Are Loaded?

Sep 15, 2014

I don't know what I did but suddenly video thumbnails disappeared, so I reinstalled K-Lite Codec Pack MEGA version. I'm using a laptop with Windows 8.1 x64. VLC is the default media player. I've installed MPC-HC and K-Lite Codec Pack MEGA. Everything is up to date.

Once I reinstalled K-Lite MEGA pack, thumbnails appeared again, but now something's wrong. When I open the "Videos" folder, VLC icons don't appear. All icons are blank (there's no icon, just blank space with the file's name below) until the thumbnail is loaded.

Before, ALL icons appeared (VLC icon) and then the thumbnails got loaded. If I refreshed, the thumbnails didn't start to load again, the window blinked for 1 millisecond and then everything was already loaded.

Now, if I refresh, it starts all over again, all icons are blank and the thumbnails start to load again. I've reinstalled MPC-HC, K-Lite MEGA pack, Disk cleanup thumbnails, show only icons, apply and then uncheck that option... Nothing changes

I don't understand anything. Here's a screenshot in the middle of the process:

There should be VLC icons instead of those blank spaces, and it shouldn't start to load everything each time I refresh.

Windows 8.1 X64 - Folder Icon Don't Show Thumbnails / Images

Apr 26, 2014

I'm using Windows 8.1 x64.

In the MUSIC folder I have 1 folder for each artist. In each Artist folder I have 1 folder for each Album. And in each Album folder I have all the songs, with the cover art embedded in them, in every single .mp3 I have.

In folder options I've set folders to show thumbnails, not icon. So, each Album folder's icon is the album art of the .mp3 files it has inside. BUT in the MUSIC folder, all the Artist folders don't show the album arts they have inside. Their icon is not a folder's icon neither, it's like thumbnails of folders:

And I'd like them to show the thumbnails of the albums they have inside. Well, the maximum amount of images that a folder icon can show is 2, so if I have more than 1 album in an Artist folder, then the icon should be 2 random thumbnails (of 2 albums).

An example here:

I put a song (with embedded cover art) in the desktop. The archive's icon is the cover art.

Now I create a NEW FOLDER (the icon is a default folder icon) called "Album". I put there the .mp3 file. Now, the "Album" folder's icon is the cover art of the .mp3 file.

Then I create ANOTHER new folder called "Artist" (default folder icon), and I put there the "Album" folder. And here, the "Artist" folder's icon is NOT the cover art, but the icon of the image above, and I want it to show the cover art.

Notice that all album's folders have only .mp3 files, not hidden images like "folder.jpg" or anything else, just .mp3 files.

What drives me crazy is that like a week ago, Artist folders were showing cover arts of the albums they had inside (they picked up 2 random images, cause folders can show up to 2 thumbnails).

Apps / Software :: Cannot Delete Program Thumbnails In Start Menu App Listing

Aug 20, 2014

I'm trying to delete the games listed here in my start menu programs list:

I've read online that you should be able to delete them by going into the program files folder for "Wildtangent games" but the problem is that I ACCIDENTALLY DELETED THAT FOLDER PERMANENTLY, so now when I click on "open file location" I get this games window that I cant do anything with:

I already tried re-installing wildtangent games to see if that would somehow re-instate access to these games' files in program files, but to no avail.

Is there still some way to make it so they dont show up?

8.1 Pro - Can't Preview Any Files Other Than Pictures

What else can I try?

Choose Own Pictures Folders?

Mar 23, 2014

The Pictures Library in the Photos app/tile in Windows 8 doesn't offer me the option to choose my own pictures folders as it does my video ones. It only offers me to create a folder (I don't know where) or to import pictures from a camera or a cell phone, I suppose.

Is there any way for me to pick my own pictures folders instead of having to move my pictures into a Windows default folder only to have to move them again (or lose them)

How To Restore Public Pictures Folder

Jun 5, 2013

Within the document libraries there appear to be a number of default folders For Example

My Pictures
Public Pictures

Whilst transferring all my picture files across from my old laptop I seem to have deleted the public pictures folder within my personal library. After a bid of searching around I have found the Public Pictures folder under the "public" area of the C: directory. It appears to only be missing only in my profile account (other profiles are also unaffected).

My question is how do I restore this folder? If I copy and paste the source public pictures folder I appear to be making a complete copy, rather than a shortcut type link to the files.

Thumbnail Pictures Deleted - How To Restore

Jan 29, 2014

My problem is that all my thumbnails that would normally show as the actual picture in any file or folder including ones saved to the desktop have all been replaced with a windows generic mountain and sun cartoon. The only way I can see what any individual picture file is to physically click on it and open it up in a viewer. This is a royal pain to try to find any individual picture to say the least.

.I get a error message saying restore could not be completed...try choosing a different restore date.........I have tried them all.....same error message
